Machine Gun Kelly’s tour bus vandalized with homophobic slur
Machine Gun Kelly’s tour bus was vandalized with a graphic image and homophobic slur ahead of his show in Omaha, Nebraska, on Thursday, Page Six can confirm.
Photos circulating online showed that the “Emo Girl” singer’s red bus had been marked with the words “Rap Devil F—-t” on one side of it in yellow paint and an image of a large penis ejaculating on the other side of the vehicle .
An Omaha police spokesperson exclusively tells Page Six that no arrests have been made yet, but there is an active investigation into the incident.
“An official report was made and that will get assigned to a detective for a follow-up,” the public information officer says.
The Omaha Police officer adds that the bus has been returned to its normal condition as “all of the spray paint was easily removed and there was no permanent damage to the tour bus.”
It is unclear if charges will be filed, but the PIO also explains that it would be up to the leasing bus company, Russel Coach Company, to decide if they want to do so.
“Technically, since they own the vehicle, it would be up to them whether they want to press charges or not,” the officer says. “When the case gets assigned to one of our detectives, they will contact Russel Coach Company and if they choose to decline to press charges, the case would not be investigated any further. “
The vandalism took place outside of the CHI Health Center Omaha, where Kelly is scheduled to perform in a few hours. It is unclear if he will still hit the stage.
The “Bloody Valentine” singer’s rep did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
On Wednesday, Kelly showed off his colorful lineup of tour buses on his Instagram Stories.
He proudly wrote over the clip, “Taking the power rangers to OMAHA,” as he recorded a series of parked buses painted in yellow, red, green and blue.
MGK, who is engaged to Megan Fox, has not addressed the homophobic attack made against him on social media.
Since the “Rap Devil” singer has embarked on his “Mainstream Sellout” tour this summer, there have been a few examples of things that have gone awry.
During one of his first shows in Detroit on June 3, a prop helicopter that he uses to fly onto the stage some turbulence, according to Loudwire.
Then in July, a fan groped him while he was performing at a show in Portland, Oregon, following his star-studded concert in Los Angeles.
